The LSU women's tennis team calls the newly renovated W.T. "Dub" Robinson Tennis Stadium home for the 2003-04 season after the 28-year old structure received an impressive facelift that was completed in the off-season.

Both the nationally ranked Lady Tigers and Tigers now enjoy state-of-the-art locker rooms, a squad room, brand-new showers and bathrooms. The totally refurbished "Dub" Robinson Tennis Stadium also includes a media room, an area specified for stringing rackets and a ground floor viewing area for handicapped tennis fans.

With both modern outdoor and indoor tennis courts, the LSU tennis facilities are among the best in the nation. The W.T. "Dub" Robinson Tennis Stadium, named in honor of LSU's former winningest tennis coach, was completed in 1970 and is the site of the Lady Tigers' home outdoor matches.

The "Dub" Robinson Tennis Complex consists of six varsity courts and six practice courts. The six varsity courts were resurfaced in the fall of 1994 in preparation for the 1995 Southeastern Conference Men's Championships. The six practice courts received new surfaces last spring as a part of the facilities' makeover. The varsity courts feature a fully mechanical scoreboard and can accommodate up to 550 spectators.

Both the 1999 and 1988 SEC Women's Tournaments were played at Robinson Stadium. Since its inception in 1976, the LSU women's tennis program has made impressive strides towards success in the national and conference standings. The Lady Tigers netted five Louisiana AIAW Championships in their first six seasons of existence. The Lady Tigers are a combined 255-114 (.691) at Robinson Stadium since 1976 and 114-54 (.679) since 1992 in 12 seasons under head coach Tony Minnis.

In 1991, LSU competed in its first NCAA postseason tournament, claiming a 19-6 record and No. 18 national ranking. The Lady Tigers netted their best-ever season in 1995, advancing to the second round of the NCAA's en-route to a No. 18 final ranking. Minnis has led LSU to seven-straight NCAA postseason appearances, including impressive outings in three seasons at the NCAA Southwest Regional Championships.

The LSU Field House, which can seat up to 3,000 spectators, has four surfaced courts. The courts were resurfaced in December of 1990 and it gives LSU one of the finest on-campus indoor tennis facilities in the country. The LSU Field House is climate controlled and also plays host to LSU track and field meets.
